Uranus will be transiting the last ten degrees in cardinal signs, affecting Cancer suns the strongest. This will apply to you if you fall within the last 21-30 degrees of Cancer, or your birthday is between 13th-22nd of July. Uranus – the planet of eccentricity, novelty and new will be square from the 10th house, your house of career. You may need to let go of a career in 2017 and look to an unusual path. Uranus speaks to the vein of freelancing. The motto with Uranus is to expect the unexpected, so some sort of career change could come swiftly.

The only way this sector could be positive is if you are reconnecting with business partners from the past.
Big changes as well for Cancer moons in those degrees- big changes with family, richening of emotional relations, perhaps a psychological exploration into the root of some struggle they’ve been grappling with. Some see this transit manifest on a sort of “on/off” pattern in relationships. Uranus brings the surprises, but it’ll lead to a situation that feels more authentic and real to you. Uranus transits don’t let you take bullshit or do what the “right” thing. You may veer off the conventional path to do something that feels right to your soul. Uranus won’t let you deal with areas that seem fake or forced to you- which is why those changes could come about.
If your Cancer sun, moon or ascendant falls between 16-20 degrees, you will experience your Pluto opposition for first and last time. This would be a birthday July 8th-12/13th if your sun is in Cancer.

Priorities in 2017
North & South nodes of the moon (Rahu and Ketho) change for for a year and a half- to your 2nd & 8th house, respectively, crabs.
North Node brings material manifestation on an outer level so this transit could bring increases in your finances. However, this isn’t the sort of finances from winning the lottery or marrying someone affluent- this is money you’ve earned. You will have to work for this money, but North Node indicates the money you’ve worked for will be plentiful and flow to you with more easy.
South node is about letting go, making some sort of sacrifices. This falls in the 8th house, which rules other people’s money. You may have to let go of relying on someone’s resources. Astrologers have logged instances in their clients where perhaps they’ve graduated college and their parents have cut them off, so they ran out of trust fund money or had to get a divorce from a wealthy partner.
North Node will help you make that $$ on your own, without the reliance from others. It’s time to depend on yourself for your finances. Earn that money from your own efforts. It’ll be a good time to save some money.
Happy New Year, Crabs! Wishing you all the best!
